SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Alumni of Sulphur High School are getting excited about the school's centennial celebration in April. The West Calcasieu school has a rich and storied history. 

On Saturday, April 20, the school will celebrate its centennial. The school pre-dates Sulphur's incorporation as a city. Among its graduates are Stine's founder J. W. Stine and Betty Crouch.

"We had such a wonderful time at Sulphur High," said Betty Crouch, who graduated in 1944. "I believe we had 97 in my graduating class and nearly all of them are gone."

Carol Leblanc Watson, a member of the Class of 1953 remembers the late B. S. Walker, who was principal when she attended.

"I was cheerleader for two years and every time it was time to order sweaters, he personally took the girls in his office and measured us, because he didn't want any tight sweaters on the football field," Watson said.

Dr. George Hardy Vincent is also from the class of 1953. He still has his mascot uniform from the early days.

"I'm wearing this football jacket. I think football made it back in the 40s and 50s. That was a big thing," Vincent said.

Big plans for the centennial include a car giveaway from All-Star, alumni choral and band concerts, displays and of course reunions and tours. For more information, go to www.sulphurhigh100.com.
